Schiavo and Peterson

Sorry, but this is important.

Peter Byrnes observes that it's strange that Judge George Greer is refusing to here any evidence or entertain any arguments which might prevent in the killing of Terry Schiavo, yet Scott Peterson is entitled to an automatic appeal to his death sentence. As Byrnes eloquently puts it: "And we find ourselves where we are today. Valuing a murderer's wasted life over those fragile lives which are just begging for the chance to be taken seriously."

Jonathan, thank you so much for your work on this. We have to keep hammering away on two fronts - on the gates of Heaven and at the doors to people's hearts.

I linked to your work over at our blog, The Reform Club (

Hearing that ghoul George Felos describe Congressional efforts to save Terri as "odious" and the "lowest form of political strong-arming" provided a bloodcurdling reality check into the power of the 'Culture of Death' that has penetrated sizeable segments of society. Brrr.

Or maybe Judge Greer is simply tired of Ms. Schiavo's parents abusing the judicial system after 7 years. Talk about the need for lawsuit abuse reform! Oh the irony!
